It's drain was stopped up, and it has a float switch that turns off the A/C if it gets full, to keep you from ruining your ceiling. So, I got the drain opened and the A/C started working again.
Glad to hear you nipped that in the bud. That happened to the A/C unit in our room when we went on vacation this year. Only the drain pan overflowed all over the carpet and soaked Mr.'s suitcase, which was on the floor near the unit. They moved us to another room, and we had to head to Sears the next day for a new suitcase. (Happily, the suitcase contents were all in plastic bags and stayed dry.)

My brother changed the oil in my van and fixed a few things, it is running smooth again. I love my brother!
I'm glad your mom's surgery went well! Praying for a quick recovery for her. It is funny that you mention Can. Geo. mags - I bought a bunch of Nat'l Geo. mags at the local GW the other day for .39 each - they were from the WWII era and are in excellent shape! I'm glad your brother was able to fix your van, but I'm sure you would love him even if he couldn't. Take care, Christmasstar!

The ballpark does give you chills---it's the sense of history, the great players and plays that have happened there for a hundred years, and the millions of fans who have cheered and booed and eaten hot dogs and enjoyed a day rooting for the Sox. It's a great place to be on a spring or summer afternoon.

Tiger Stadium was like that - truly awesome! Have fun at Fenway!

Thank you for my daughters get well wishes too. Unfortunately she is worse tonight so it doesn't look like she will make it to the beach house this week. She saw the doctor today and we are waiting for a couple of test results but the doctor went ahead and started her on antibiotics.
And speaking of antibiotics, Maggie will take her last dose tomorrow. The poor thing is still coughing so I need to call the veterinarian to see what the next step is.
I took this of my puppies today while they were keeping cool in my daughters room



I'm going to turn in soon, I had a super busy day. I hope everyone has a good night and sweet dreams xo

Good afternoon everyone. Hope all my fellow Christmas Fanatics been having a great day. Today at work been off and on busy for us in the IT office with system issues effecting some Honda Lines. SO hopefully it does not happen again but at least were ready to fix it again if it does. Poor harder still not able to shake that cough she has but she is at least in good sprits, and now only seems to have the most issue when she is trying to run around to much.

Thanks again to Jeff today for getting me fixed up back on the boards. Tried changing my email address and somehow back end system didn't like that change but he was able to be me back and running again today.
